Executive Management

Maury Marks
President & CEO
Throughout his career, Maury Marks has established himself as a visionary in the automotive retail technology industry. As one of the original founders, and as the President and CEO of Quorum Information Technologies, Maury has created a team that is committed to building and providing the best dealership management system in the industry. Growing up in Alberta, Canada, Maury worked in his family’s GM dealership. During this time, he was exposed to the facets of dealership management and the challenges dealers face from both a business and technology standpoint. In 1996, Maury’s family approached him in need of a new DMS. After evaluating and realizing that the DMS industry was largely stagnated, Maury and his partners conceived the idea of Quorum. He focused the company on the development of its flagship XSellerator DMS software. Maury earned a Bachelor of Management (with Distinction) from the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada in 1988. He then received his Chartered Accountant’s designation couple of years later after articling with Deloitte and Touche in Calgary. Maury started in the accounting group and eventually moved to the firm’s technology practice where he had the experience of helping various corporations select and implement technology and systems that best fit their business needs. In 1992, Maury made the decision to leave Deloitte and Touche to begin his own practice of technology consulting. While Maury is not on business trips, he can be found in Quorum’s headquarters in Calgary, Alberta.

Jen Phillips
Director, Account Management
Personal development is really the thing I hang my hat in work and in life. I’m always looking for ways to do things better or different. My brain functions best in overdrive which is perfect for my role because every day is “game day” and you have to give a 110% effort. My “go to” after a busy day is going on Pinterest and saving quotes and recipes that I’ll never make and spending quality time with my husband and boys.
